We rebooked Paula for a 2nd assignment and were once again very pleased. She took great care our our sweet girl and looked after the house, even during some scary storms. Paula provided daily communication to help relieve the stress of traveling. Our baby had a few days of not feeling well, but Paula did a wonderful job of monitoring her and providing feedback about her conditions. Will continue to use this amazing person.

Bkgrnd. Verified, Kind, Competent

I grew up with animals, and have owned dogs and cats pretty much my whole life. Unfortunately, I am unable to have any pets in my home because my landlords won't allow it, but still I miss having them to cuddle and play with.

I am retired, and have time on my hands. There is nothing that I would like to do more than assist pet owners with their needs, whether it be sitting, medication ...

What Paula would like to know about your dog

PLEASE BE UPFRONT WITH ME prior to our meet up in your home in regard to how many animals you actually have that you will need to have taken care of in your absence. The first dog or cat will be at the rate of $30/night or $40/night for holidays. The rate for up to two additional pets PER NIGHT will be $8.00/per pet. If you have more than three animals total, I can negotiate the pricing with you.

NO AGGRESSIVE DOGS OR BREEDS
If your dog has ever bitten someone or attacked another animal or person, that would be considered an aggressive dog

Two dogs plus two cats are my typical maximum, but it really depends on the meet up in your home as to the number of animals I would be willing to sit with.

Small to medium in size (no more than 20-30 pounds)

Additional charges for extras:

VET APPOINTMENTS / DROP-OFFS OR PICK-UPS
$15.00 +$0.60/mile each way

ERRANDS (any type)
$15.00 per errand +$0.60/mile (and will be dependent upon distance)

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Can provide daily exercise
Senior Dog Experience

When Paula watches your pet

Puppies will be accepted only after a meet up in your home. It will depend on how well trained they are. The overnight rate for puppies is $35/night and $40/night for holidays.

No dog walking during the summer months as the pavement is too hot for their paw pads. We will instead play fetch either inside the home or inside of your fenced yard, if applicable.

I refrain from taking your pups to dog parks due to the possibility that they may not come back to me at the end of their play time, or the possibility of a dog fight where your dog is injured while under my care.

Your dogs and cats will feel loved and cared for in your absence.

I am not adverse to working with special needs animals.

For overnight stays I am willing to travel up to 20 or so miles each way.
